5 Things You Missed Today (February 18)
You have never heard One Direction's "They Don't Know About Us" like this, and you should. Fifth Harmony is promoting their latest album Reflection these days so during one of their appearances, they chose to do a cover of the 1D track. When can we listen to a collaboration, you guys? After all, Liam Payne gave their album a shoutout on Twitter recently and 5H revealed on the Big Morning Buzz Live that they'd want to work with the boyband, too. Someone make this happen, please!
What do you get when you put Taylor Swift and Jimmy Fallon together? You get one hilarious sketch. Don't believe us? Hit the play button of T-Swizzle's appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon recently where she showed off her Jumbotron dance moves. These two are the cutest!
Speaking of T-Swizzle, there have been rumors recently that she is dating singer Hozier. These reports started when the two were spotted in a Grammy Awards after-party recently. But the Irish musician told Us Weekly that there's nothing romantic going on between them. "It's not romantic," he said. "She's just a huge fan!" Even sources confirmed it saying they're really just friends. While we really don't mind if these two dated for real, we just wish they stopped making romantic connections in an instant whenever Tay is spotted with a guy. Maybe they're just talking about something else when they were spotted, like a collaboration? We'd really love that.
ICYMI, Lionsgate recently gave us a glimpse of Peeta's (Josh Hutcherson) stay in the Capitol in this recently-revealed deleted scene from The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1. In time for the movie's HD release, the people behind Mockingjay gave fans something they could go crazy about. We never saw what happened to Katniss's (Jennifer Lawrence) fellow tribute while he was under President Snow's power, but we're finally getting an idea in this clip. Now we know why the people behind the movie cut it off—so we'd all get a feel of what our heroine is going through. Hit the play button to watch the clip now.
Right now we're wishing we actually lived in NYC. Why? Because Glee star Darren Criss is returning to Broadway for Hedwig and the Angry Inch and we want to watch him! It's a musical about a transgender rocker looking for love in the USA, so he's expected to wear wigs and heels and we totes think he can pull it off. Good luck on this new project, Darren!

To the Person Who Does Not Know Any 1D Song
By: CJ Reyno
Never in my wildest dream I imagined to meet someone who does not know a single One Direction song or who does not even know, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne, Niall Horan, and err… Zayn Malik. How did you spend your teenagehood without listening to their songs? The disrespect to my #StyPayHorLikSon. My initial reaction, Vas Happenin’?
Since I was 12 years old, that was way back on 2012, One Direction songs have been my official life soundtrip, my go-to songs whenever I feel happy, sad, mad, excited, and etch. I can still remember how people went crazy just to attend their concert here in the Philippines. I must admit, I was one of those. LOL. The group was also dubbed as, “The Biggest Boyband in the World”. They were an era. You really left me in awe when you told me that you do not know a single One Direction song. Their songs are gold. But I was a little hopeful when a new messaged popped up on our conversation, “Hey I know one, Make You Beautiful”.
You do not know how my world collapsed after reading your message. I would like to say that I appreciate the effort, thanks, but they do not have a song entitled, Make You Beautiful, because it is, What Makes You Beautiful. I tried to explain but you said that they are just the same. (Tip: Never fight with a Directioner when it comes to this because we will not let our guards down). No! They are not the same. How can you make this big mistake? LOL. What Makes You Beautiful is One Direction’s debut song. Almost everyone knows this, “you’re insecure, don’t know what for,” ring a bell? The music video of this surpassed 1 billion views on Youtube. On my 21 years of existence, you are the very first person who told me this “I-Thought-It-Was-A-Joke-But-You-Are-Serious” statement.
As a persuasive fangirl, I thought to myself that I should make you appreciate their music, that you should know that it is What Makes You Beautiful, not Make You Beautiful. The group may be in hiatus but their music is and will always remain superior. You are hard-headed lad. We even when to the point where you challenged me to treat so I can make you watch their music video. Am I even surprised that I agreed to this? HAHA. I feel like an agent trying to persuade her customer to buy a property on our company. You do not know how happy I was when you sent me your video listening to What Makes You Beautiful. I felt like I successfully closed a deal with my client. Not to exaggerate but I really jumped because of happiness after watching your video. It was the first message I checked that morning. Thank you for your effort, so much appreciated. Funny how our conversation starts with your innocence on One Direction until it goes deeper and last longer. Up All Nigh conversations which turned to almost Midnight Memories. Ironic how a Directioner had developed an admiration on someone who dislikes her favorite boys? Just like One Direction’s song, Change My Mind, “Never felt like this before. Are we friends or are we more?” I guess, like Liam’s line on Love You Goodbye, “It's inevitable everything that's good comes to an end. It's impossible to know if after this we can still be friends.”
I was happy that I made you listen to One Direction. At least I made you appreciate and made you aware that there is a song called, What Makes You Beautiful, not Make You Beautiful. I am happy that you already found your Girl Almighty. Wish me luck on finding my Summer Love. xoxo, Your Directioner friend
Here's a fan art that I made for Lee Joo Young of Itaewon class! I've been making digital illustration since last year and I'm happy that I was able to see my improvements. I'm also happy to see people's reactions and support for my craft even though all of it are made through my phone (adobe illustrator) only ????. You don't actually have to use expensive or complicated medium as long as you know how to be creative and like what you're doing, then you can do it. ????
